I was a volunteer for OKSAD for about 18 months (give or take a couple of months) while I lived in Oklahoma City. The organization is is without a doubt one of the most caring organizations around and the placement of their animals with the correct home is absolutely paramount. That is what led me to volunteer with them over others. The amount of work that goes into placing dogs with the right home is massive and is certainly not easy. Other places drop prices and don't do their research and hope for the best. This place ensures that whatever decision is made, is made for the benefit of the animal. The face or the organization, Sunshine, is perhaps one of the nicest and sweetest people you could ever hope to meet and we are still friends even after I moved to Florida. Her drive to help these animals in need is second to no ones. You would do well to volunteer with, donate money/supplies, or adopt from OKSAD.

We TOTALLY love OK Save A Dog Society !! Eleven years ago we adopted 2 of our 3 dogs from them (the other one we found LOL). We have helped out at a few adoption events, have donated money, blankets and other supplies when we can, but the main way we offer our service to them is to act as Volunteer transport drivers. When dogs need to find their way to Prague, OK, we proudly offer our car, our gasoline and our time. We know that it takes all of us doing our part in order to help Kim and Sunshine find forever homes for these innocent dogs. We love our dogs and can't imagine our lives without them. We owe Kim and Sunshine a debt of gratitude for saving our dogs when they were helpless and homeless. We will always feel a special connection to them and treasure our roles in the huge, loving family that is known as OK Save A Dog Society. We love OKSAD !!!

I have had Tracy for over 8 yrs. My daughter adopted McQueen about 7 yrs ago and through a move I have him. Both dogs were vet cared for and fixed before they ever left OK Save A Dog. I have called several times to find out a bit more information about Tracy and they were always very polite and helpful. The facility is clean and all of the animals are well cared for and happy. In the future I plan to adopt from them again, Great Place, Great People, Great Dogs.

Kim & Sunshine are true angels here on earth! They have helped me and my small Rescue save so many lives. They don’t pick and choose, they have helped me save sick/injured dogs, puppies with no momma, seniors, all lives matter to them. I absolutely love working with these 2 ladies and visiting with them when I transport there. This by far is the best Rescue I have worked with in the 5 years I been rescuing! I can never thank them enough for all they have done for me and my rescue!

This rescue is one of the very few who take the time to socialize each of the dogs. They screen each adopter and work to find the right match to maximize success. The dogs are fully medically vetted including micro chips. They are the best.

Great charity with great dogs. I have fostered for them and adopted two. They are loving, caring people. The dogs are all healthy when available for adoption with shots, de-wormed, heart worm checked and have microchips.

This organization is fantastic! We adopted a pup (Toby/now Buddy) from them in April when he was about 8-9 weeks old. He came to us healthy and well-taken care of, as well as chipped and neutered. I know he was in excellent health because I took him to my vet, immediately (just a habit of mine). I already had 3 cats and 2 dogs so I did not HAVE to get another! I CHOSE to get Buddy from OKSAD because of it's great reputation (multiple family members have adopted from them). The length of the form and the scrutiny of the questions made me nervous about "passing muster"; however, I took no offense because they want their dogs to be well-taken care of and well-loved for the rest of their lives!! Thankfully, OKSAD gave us custody of this vibrant, bright-eyed sweetheart and he has changed the lives of my husband and me!! Rest assured, my future dogs will all come from this wonderful organization I KNOW I can trust! I have no doubt every dollar raised is used for the rescue and care of these precious souls--I wish I had a million dollars to give them!

Thank you for all the help and emotional support you gave my family whilst they were in Oklahoma receiving treatment for cancer . The dog that they chose and you organised (with great effort on your part) to be flown to the UK has proven to be a wonderful addition to the family.

My family has adopted 3 dogs from OKSaveaDog. They do amazing work and save so many animals' lives. They are essential to helping the animal community and deserve all the help and recognition they can get!

I was looking for a puppy on petfinder and found a precious female sable dog with Ok Save a dog. My mother and I drove to Oklahoma to get her. Once we got there and Kim brought her out, although she was beautiful it was not a good fit. Kim brought her sister out. She came out barking and playful...I knew she was the one! She is now 7 years old, weighs 130lbs and is my best feiend. Ok Save a dog does wonderful, caring work for these babies.

My family and I have volunteered for events, picked up dogs for Kim and Sunshine, adopted out many and many of dogs, donated and seen how much efforts this rescue puts in day in and day out. Currently, my mother has 3 oksad dogs, my oldest sister has two, my other sister has 1, both of my brothers each have 2 oksad dogs, and my grandparents have 2, and my aunt has 1, and I am about to foster one myself. Each of these dogs have been such large parts of our family, and we love them dearly, along with this rescue group. We continually follow up with this group, and love hearing stories of other families who have also adopted from them.

Ok Save a Dog has some of the biggest hearts out there. They save as many animals as they can, nurse and love them until they can find amazing, loving homes. Their efforts are heartwarming and my next dog will be a rescue from them.

Awesome organization. We adopted a puppy that I wouldn't want to do life without her. She provides so much joy and OK Save A Dog was great to work with!

I have been donating to OK Save A Dog for some time. Not only do they pull dogs from shelters but being in a rural setting, they take in the dogs that are dumped in the country. To see the transition of the dogs that are taken in is amazing. The time and dedication of all involved to foster and attend adoption events might seem overwhelming to some but the OK Save A Dog team does it consistently and constantly. They really go the extra mile.

I have been volunteering with OK Save A Dog for over 10 yrs now! They are the real deal! They fully vet every dog, let the dogs be dogs... they aren't penned up 24/7 but are able to run and play all day! Each potential adopter is screened thoroughly because they truly care about the animals. It's about quality not quantity! Their lives are dedicated to these animals and I am blessed to be a part of this. Incredible rescue!

OK Save A Dog is the B.E.S.T.!!!!! Not only are they non-kill and place dogs in loving fur-ever homes, they make sure that the dogs are placed in the RIGHT homes. They ensure that each applicant is screened thoroughly and placed in the correct environment. They fully vet each pooch that comes through their gates and dogs are....DOGS there.... they run free....aren't caged up 24/7. Nice open areas! WONDERFUL place..... should be called HAPPY ENDINGS!

Fantastic. This program strives to match animals to homes based on needs and personalities. They work tirelessly to educate people, too. They save countless lives and deserve a special place in heaven.

This organization saves so many dogs, it is amazing.. They really care a lot about their dogs going to good homes, go to great efforts to ensure that they do.. They always have so many precious dogs of all ages, there is no reason for anyone in central Oklahoma to look anywhere else to find their next best friend.. I got my little She-Ra there, and our family just LOVES her and we all think she is the most beautiful perfect dog in the world!

The real deal. When you donate, your money goes strictly to the dogs. No salaries and no fluff. I've not only adopted 3 dogs from them, I've visited there numerous times and the place is clean and very well kept. There are no cages. They are about saving lives, even lives of the not so perfect or not so adorable or those in need of big medical care. Oklahoma is very blessed to have them saving lives and educating adopters! They are always willing to take back any dog they've adopted out. ❤️

Amazing group. The dogs aren't kenneled. The place is clean and in order. They really care about where the dogs go and set them up for success. They are name #2 on the microchip, in case the owners number changes. We've adopted 3 dogs from them & we E joy volunteering.
